The Infoblox 805 Series front panel components are shown in Figure 1 and Infoblox Trinzic 805 Series Appliance, Front View and described in Table 1. For explanations of the Ethernet port LEDs, and console and Ethernet port connector pin assignments, see Ethernet Port LEDs and and Interface Connector Pin Assignments.

A power switch to turn the power supply of the appliance on and off. The switch is hidden. Use a small blunt object, such as a paper clip, to gently push the switch.
An LED that glows green when there is power to the appliance. When it is dark, the appliance is not receiving power, even if the power cable is plugged in. When it glows red, there is an error. Ensure that you power on the appliance through the On/Off switch using a small blunt object, such as a paper clip.
Dedicated Ethernet port used for LOM (Lights Out Management) with specific releases of NIOS. The IPMI/LOM Port supports 10/100/1000 Mbps operations. Ensure that the IPMI port is properly connected to the network before you configure LOM through Grid Manager for remote management. The IPMI/LOM port auto-negotiates up to Fast Ethernet 1000BASE-TX speeds; ensure that the switch port to which the IPMI port connects will auto-negotiate to 1000 Mbps operation.
A male DB-9 serial port for a console connection to change basic configuration settings and view basic system functions through the CLI (command line interface).
Reserved for future use.
A 10/100/1000-Mbps gigabit Ethernet port that you can use for appliance management, or for appliance services on the network. You can enable the MGMT port and define its use through the Grid Manager after the initial setup.
A 10/100/1000-Mbps gigabit Ethernet port that connects a NIOS appliance to the network. You must use the LAN1 port to set up the appliance initially. It handles all traffic if you do not enable the MGMT and LAN2 ports. The passive node in an HA pair uses this port to synchronize the database with the active node.
HA Port (inactive and reserved for future use in the ND-805 and TR-805)
A 10/100/1000-Mbps gigabit Ethernet port through which the active node in an HA (high availability) pair connects to the network using a VIP (virtual IP) address. HA pair nodes also use their HA ports for VRRP (Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol) advertisements.
A 10/100/1000-Mbps gigabit Ethernet port that connects a NIOS appliance to the network. The LAN2 port is disabled by default. You can enable the LAN2 port and define its use through the Grid Manager after the initial setup.
The unit identification button. Pressing the UID button illuminates the blue UID LED on the rear panel. In a rack environment, the UID feature enables easier location of a server when moving between the front and rear of the rack. You can also identify the appliance through the Infoblox Grid Manager and CLI command.

Ethernet Port LEDs
View the Activity and Link LEDs to see link activity and connection speeds on Ethernet ports. Figure 2 The following figure describes the status conveyed by Ethernet port LEDs through their color and illumination (steady glow or blinking).

- USB port (reserved for future use)
- Male DB-9 console port
- RJ-45 10Base-T/100Base-T/1000Base-T auto-sensing gigabit Ethernet ports
Figure 3 DB-9 Console Port and RJ-45 Port Pinouts describes DB-9 and RJ-45 connector pin assignments. DB-9 pin assignments follow the EIA232 standard. To make a serial connection from your management system to the console port, you can use an RJ-45 rollover cable and two female RJ-45-to-female DB-9 adapters, or a female DB-9-to-female DB-9 null modem cable. RJ-45 pin assignments follow IEEE 802.3 specifications. All Infoblox Ethernet ports are auto-sensing and automatically adjust to standard straight-through and cross-over Ethernet cables.
